Rated 4 out of 5 by from Charcuterie in a Jar Appetizer This was a very simple appetizer to make. It was also very good. The only problem was there is really no way to scoop up the nuts gracefully and not get your hands into the dip. Maybe add a spoon or skip the nuts and maybe use black and/or green olives in the bottom with a spare spear?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So cute! Love the individual cups. Easy to pick up at a shower or event. Of course you can change up what is in them as needed. Very fun!
